The path to kindergarten, and future success, goes through Preschool and Pre-K. The sooner your child starts their journey, the better. Let us ensure their school readiness. 

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Charleston, SC!

Whether it's providing loving care for Infants, participating in activities in our Preschool programs, or prepping tomorrow's leaders through one of our other age-specific options, I love getting to watch so many little ones learn and grow!

We are excited to offer new technology in our School-Age classroom. These enhancements include iPads featuring apps to create art, music and videos, tripods for moviemaking, robots for coding, a new gaming system and more!

My staff and I are committed to the highest standards of excellence when it comes to care and education in a secure environment. Staff members participate in training throughout the year to stay current in the field of early childhood education. I have an open-door policy and encourage active involvement in all of our events so that families feel comfortable and secure.

4.9 out of 5 stars
Great school and providers.
Verified Shopper
I’ve been extremely happy in the school. The fun activities, learning experiences, and the love and care they get are the best.
Verified Shopper
We have had a great experience thus far. Everyone communicates with us and knows every child by name, which is wonderful. The staff truly cares about each child.
Verified Shopper
I’ve enjoyed the time our child has been there! It’s nice to have a partnership with the people who are with your kid during a large part of their lives!
Verified Shopper
We've loved being part of the La Petite family. The director, Shannon, is wonderful. Always ready to answer questions and keep us informed. Our daughter's teachers are kind and helpful. When we bring our older daughter in, her former teachers always say hi to her and ask her how she is doing. It's wonderful that they remember her from when she attended the school. Thank you!

Verified Shopper
Wonderful teachers and directors.
Verified Shopper
Very good, my kid is happy and well cared for. I enjoy the updates throughout the day!
Verified Shopper
I have never had a single moment of concern during my child's 2 years at La Petite. Every teacher I interact with, including the Director, know my child, know me, and always offer warm and sincere greetings. Every time I pick my daughter up from La Petite she is happy, engaged, and often doesn't want to leave. As we walk out of the building, every teacher says bye to my daughter and she smiles and
says bye back. Getting updates throughout the day through the BrightWheel app has been wonderful - it makes my day to see pictures and videos of my little girl playing with friends, learning about shapes, or whatever other activities the teachers have the kids doing. I could not be more pleased with the level of service we're received while our child has been enrolled at La Petite, not to mention the top notch facilities, easy and convenient online payment system, and frequent communication we get via the BrightWheel app and in person. We're expecting another child in a few months - and he/she will absolutely be attending La Petite!
